Chocolate Lover Brownies

But more aptly named Chocolate Lovah Brownies!

Well it's Friday peeps and the weekend is here again.  Man this week just flew by!!
Maybe because it's so stinking hot everywhere that we just melted from one weekend to the next.
Yep it's definitely summer because it's not just hot it's HAWT.

This time last week I was up to my elbows in brownies for the wedding so today I thought I'd share with you the 3rd type of brownies I made for the wedding.  First up I have to show you the table where the brownies were at the wedding,

(which reminds me...I have to get a close up picture of the Lego Parkour Park we made for Austin before he takes it away)  It's cool I'm back now.  While the photos were uploading I took care of that little job.  I'm a tad ADD sometimes (or maybe just getting old) so I just have to stop and do things when I think about them.  It's a sad reality folks.
Anywho there were the ever yummy Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ghiradelli brownies and just plain ole' regular brownies and then there were the Chocolate Lover Brownies a.k.a.  Chocolate Lovah brownies.
Let's get this party started!!

This is what you need and here is the printable so you know how much of this stuff you need.
It seems like a lot but no worries it's easy.

Combine the flour, cocoa and salt in a bowl and set aside.
Sift if you can and if you find it against your religion that day then just whisk them together.

Beat the butter, sugar and brown sugar until creamy.

Seeeeee that's creamy!!

Now add TWO of the eggs but add them one at a time and beat well after each.
Then you can add the vanilla.

SLOWLY add in the cocoa mixture.  Slowly unless you like creating a cloud of chocolate in your kitchen in which case just flip that mixer on high and have a hey day!!

Once that's all mixed up you need to save 3/4 cup of that batter in a small bowl.
No....I do not ask you to save the batter so you can eat it by itself but hey, that's not a bad idea.
Not afraid of the salmonella around these parts. No sireeee bob.

Spread the remaining batter into the prepared pan

Now add a layer of pecans on top of the batter then add the white chocolate chips.
Oh yeah, it's getting good now!

Now pour that caramel ice cream topping over the top of that deliciousness.
Yeah you heard me. Just do it!

Now take that batter that you saved and dump it back into the mixer bowl and whip in the remaining egg until it's light in color.  Don't worry, you'll see the difference.

Now grab those semi sweet chocolate chips and mix those gently into the batter

and spread that evenly over the top of all that other yummy stuff.
It's a little tricky to do but be patient and take it slow. The reward is great my friends.

Bake those for 30-35 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Then you must must must let them cool for at least 30 minutes in the pan before cutting.
Unless you are shooting for Chocolate Lovah pudding then who am I to stop you??
Oh and if you do that you should probably cover up the whole thing with vanilla ice cream.
just sayin'

Once those babies have cooled you will be vastly rewarded with this beautiful thing.

It IS a beautiful thing you know!

And then if you feel really frisky go ahead and plop a dollop of whipped topping and then of course you need to add a cherry on top and then you"ll need to drizzle some hot fudge sauce over the whole thing.   We don't do things half baked around here do we?

Don't you love me for giving you permission to do this??
It's worth it I promise!
And here's the link again in case you missed it the first time

Now in other news:

I'm not perfect with this whole cooking thing and I occasionally have a kitchen boo boo or two of my own.   Oh yeah, the whole bottom of the pan had the black charred baked beans on it.

And the exciting news for me...... I got my first ever check for this little ole' blog of mine!
Yep that's a check for my Cool Whip whipped topping post!!  I'm over the moon happy about it and I still haven't cashed it.  I'm thinking of doing the electronic deposit thing with it so I can keep the check.
Thanks to all of you for reading that post and making that check possible!!
And in case you missed it here's the link to that post.  I wouldn't want you to miss out on the fine literary style we sport around here!!  Thanks also to Clever Girls Network for allowing me to be a part of your bloggy world!!!    I'm off to melt in the heat now so drop me a line and tell me which brownies you are making or what you're making instead of turning on the oven!!!

Peace, Love & Chocolate Yummies!
